Minnesota college student wants everyone to know she really hates gays

'Love is love' message countered with 'Sin is sin'
Saturday, October 20, 2012

LGBT student groups and gay-straight alliances in high schools and colleges across the country often sell T-shirts for National Coming Out Day to raise funds and spread awareness about the LGBT community.

The Straight and Gay Alliance (SAGA) at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota is no exception. This year, like every year, the group printed shirts proclaiming that “love is love.” But this National Coming Out Day took on greater significance in Minnesota because it came less than one month before voters there will decide whether to enshrine marriage discrimination into the constitution.

Against that emotionally-charged backdrop, one student decided to use National Coming Out Day — a day for celebrating the LGBT community — to spread a bigoted, hateful message. Minnesota Public Radio reports about Concordia College senior Rebecca Julius:

Julius, a devout Wisconsin Synod Lutheran, designed black T-shirts that say “sin is sin” across the front and list three Bible passages about truth and evil on the back.

“I don’t identify with all these people that say homosexuality is a perfectly acceptable way to live; that’s not me,” she said. “So the reason I wanted to do this T-shirt was one, to stand up for God’s word because I feel like it’s getting completely trampled in this place that’s supposed to be Christian and two, to just separate myself from it and not give anybody the impression that this what I believe.”

Just to give you an idea of the likely depth of Ms. Julius’s anti-gay views, I’ll point out that the Wisconsin Synod Lutheran (WELS) Church is the same denomination that Michele and Marcus Bachmann belonged to for more than a decade.

Rebecca Julius

Needless to say, Julius’s shirts were incredibly divisive on the 2,700-person campus, particularly because LGBT people are widely accepted there. Most “Cobbers,” as Concordia students are known, oppose the marriage amendment. But that didn’t deter Julius in the least. In fact, it seems to have emboldened her — according to the MPR report, she chose to go public with her anti-gay views “to reach out to others who oppose homosexuality but who might be nervous about sharing their opinion ‘because it’s not really the socially acceptable thing to do.’” A few like-minded students even ordered “sin is sin” shirts of their own.

Of course, like most hardcore homophobes, Julius is thoroughly convinced that her efforts have a heavenly imprimatur. She told MPR:

“I’ve definitely felt alone at more than one point on campus and I feel like I don’t necessarily fit the ‘Cobber mode’ but that’s OK with me because I know where I stand with my faith. And I know I have so many people behind me and supporting me and I also know that God is proud of what I’m trying to do for him.”

This sad story of bigotry does have a silver lining, though. Rebecca Julius doesn’t actually live in Moorhead, but across the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota. So no matter how often she wears her hurtful and divisive T-shirt or how sinful she thinks LGBT people are, she won’t be able to cast her vote against them next month.

  1. There’s a reason she “feels alone.” But she’s young. Perhaps there’s hope that her life experience will open her eyes and heart.

  8. To anyone who is LGBTQ and knows this woman personally, do her a big favor and come out to her. Give her faces and people she can hate or maybe use to moderate her hate. It’s easy to hate strangers but a bit more difficult to hate someone you already know and like or even love. My older brother is Missouri Synod Lutheran but I made certain he knew that I knew he knew who I was. He still treats me well and I know I have put a crack in the wall his faith built around him.

  10. Silly bitch….doesn’t she know that “judging others is a sin???

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 8:57am
  11. She has the right to say (and wear) whatever she wants. However, I hope she understands that not only is not everyone a Christian, but not everyone even believes in God. So, if she thinks homosexuality is a sin, then she can go ahead and not sin and she’s fulfilled her obligation to her faith. But the rest of the world has a right to live how they want to live, and two consenting adults loving and marrying shouldn’t be regulated by anyone else’s religion.

  24. the bible says a lot of things, people just pick and choose what they think is best. also says to touch the skin of a dead pig in an abomination, so thats equivalent to homosexuality, clearly. eventually the world will change, once people open their hearts and minds.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:06am
  25. Who really gives cares what she thinks and does? Who is she anyway??

  34. If she says she believes in the bible then how does she reconcile the anti-gay passages with Jesus’ teaching of loving your neighbor and not judging people? I happen to have educated myself and I know that those passages are actually about rape and prostitution rather than homosexuality. But even if the were, What Jesus said trumps everything else. If you believe nothing else you should follow the 10 commandments and Jesus. That’s what I try to do.

  45. People like this girl are the reason non believers won’t even try church out. She makes God out to be this evil vindictive being who would rather smite you than love you. No human being can speak for God, we can’t possibly know what he wants. I’m a huge a equality supporter and a Christian. I can’t believe she would think it’s better to hate someone for something they can’t control than to help them gain acceptance, find happiness and hopefully get a close relationship with God. This makes me so sad :(

  47. Trying to accrpt your choice of this lifestyle with the nitpicking of the bible is like trying to say that skin color has no influence in this election

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:30am
  48. Research is showing that the more homophobic a person is, the more chance they are deep in the closet and their denial is being transfered to their behavior towards others. Looks like her outside self has realized this. She just needs to match to her inside self and COME OUT of the closet.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:30am
  49. Do you also believe in poligamy, or 50 yr olds marrying 8-9 yr olds? both of these marriage models are in the bible. I do not fault you for your faith, as I am also a Christian. However, my Jesus taught love for everyone, not just a few select people.

  56. this girl is filthy, pathetic and sad, omg how can u say that u hate all gays just because u dont agree with their life choice does not mean that u have to hate them all together, they never did anything to u nor do u even know them as people so for u to hate a good chunk of the population without even meeting them is pretty low and sad, how bout u worry about ur own pathetic little life and not judge people so much, because that is definitely not what god intends for u, nor do u have that right.

  57. And I thought people from Minnesota and Lutherans were nice. Stupid me.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:56am
  58. Butch? Lezbo? Dyke? “She looks like a lesbian herself”? As a gay woman I find a lot of these responses offensive. Just exactly what does a gay woman look like? Cut the stereotypical crap. Pfffft.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 9:59am
  59. She has every right to freedom of speech that we do. Leave her alone, jeez!
    One day, she’ll realize that of all the 7 deadly sins, homosexuality is not one of them. However, wrath and pride are!

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 10:02am
  62. She looks like a big lesbian.

    She probably hates herself for liking the Vag & not the P, but can’t come to terms w/ it, so projects her self hate towards others.

    Look at her!

    She looks like a miserably unhappy person.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 10:07am
  63. I guess she really wants everyone to know that she’s probably a closeted lesbian who hates herself.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 10:08am
  64. She can stuff her “sin” where ever it will do the most good — I guess Freedom of Religion doesn’t sound familiar or mean anything to her either.

  73. Yes sin is sin. But does that mean you get to take away peoples rights just because it goes against your beliefs? No, it shouldnt.

  74. LGBTQ Nation, why do you give energy to people like this and Linda Harvey? We know there are many fear-filled, knuckle-dragging, superstitious, people out there who use their “religious beliefs” to excuse hatred, disrespect, and the denial of human rights to those they deem unworthy or different. Why are you promoting their agendas for them?

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 10:48am
  75. Just another Christian Extremist who hides her sin of hatred behind the name of Gpd.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 10:50am

  80. Kim, if we stick our heads in the sand and not look at people or organizations that oppose us, how do we prepare for our defense? We should allow them to gain momentum and strength? We need to know as soon as it starts to form good arguments for defense.

  81. Sadly she’s probably a closeted lesbian who can’t reconcile who she is with what her hateful church teachers her.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 11:39am

  85. Yes, sin is sin, and hating others, is sin, and denigrating the love of others is sin, and thinking God hates Gay is sin. God loves the Gay as he does the Straight. So yes, Sin is Sin as her shirt proclaims, and she is the one commiting Sin.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 2:03pm
  96. Who is she to say sin is sin? Everything we (humans) do is a sin! If you translate the bible to a certain way, everything we do is a sin! But I agree with everyone…Love is Love. If she hates sinners…well that includes all of humanity.

  110. Instead of expressing her personal views that are from her personal faith, she should just focus on getting her college education.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 6:54pm
  111. She needs to read the book Confessions of An Evangelical Mom then she would know the true word of God!

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 6:54pm
  112. The Wisconsin Synod of the Lutheran Church is about as ultra conservative as you can get. This girl is beaten down by religion and will never think for herself. She is likely a self loathing closeted gay.

  113. is that a woman?? for real

  114. Is she not entitled to her opinion?

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:03pm
  115. well, isn’t she annoying. most of the kids I knew in college/high school that hated gays ended gay themselves. she’ll figure out when she meets the tight gal.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:05pm
  116. sure she is entitled to her opinion, and she has every right to voice her opinion, AND she has to take the consequences… which i’m guessing is a LOT of flack!

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:11pm
  117. This is what I just love about people who blame their personal homophobia on religion – if you are a truly religious person then you would know its not your place to judge gods children that’s gods job so perhaps all of those who believe they are here to place there personal judgments and beliefs upon others should go back to church and bible so they understand we are all gods children and WE were all created in his likeness and leave the judgment to God!

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:15pm
  118. 1. She looks like a lesbian….just saying…. 2. According to the bible, we come from 1 man and 1 woman…. who had 2 sons…. lets think about that for a moment…. 3. I believe the only difference between LGBT and the Heterosexual counterparts is the bedroom preference, why is it so important for her to deny a basic human need? We as LGBT only want the same RIGHTS as our heterosexual counterparts, we don’t want anything more than that…. so again, why is it important to know what happens in my bedroom? – Vent of the day :-)

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:24pm
  119. Don’t judge me based on your ignorance. I think that is a perfect response to her.

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:45pm
  120. And I have to throw in that luckily this country wasn’t founded on religion so her bible comment shouldn’t be taken into consideration during this election

    Posted on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 7:55pm
  121. She is definitely a lesbian who is angry because she can’t come out.

  125. That’s ok because this Philadelphia student wants everyone to know that she thinks you’re an awhile.

  127. She has the right to express her opinion of her beliefs. I personally believe it’s sad that they don’t line up with what I consider Christian. But perhaps time will tell, she’s still young.

  128. So what? It’s Free Speech. I grew up in the 80s, back then Eddy Murphy and Sam Kinison where telling the most homophobic jokes in the world, her “sin is sin” t-shirt shouldn’t bother anyone but the ennui born in the 90s, you know, the uber-sensitive douchebags that commit suicide over cyber bullying.

  129. quoted from a friend…”So, there’s a Chik-fil-A opening up near our neighborhood and James told me that when they open a new location the first 100 people get free food for a year or some such thing. Wouldn’t it be cool if the first 100 people in line were LGBT?” Yes it would. I believe they are in the Huntington Beach , Ca area.

  130. Hating others doesn’t make you a better person. Hating the way others love doesn’t make you a better person. Being narrow minded doesn’t make you any more intelligent. Promoting hatred and closed minded views doesn’t make this world a better place because it leads to people thinking it’s okay be hurtful and possibly violent because others are “different” or in this case “sinful”. I say enough. This world has enough hate. This world has enough violence. This world has enough narrow minded fools to destroy the beautiful capacity we have to love and embrace one another. Live and let live. Love and let love. Let her think what she will but it doesn’t make her a better person for “reaching out” to promote hate. The future is made by those who can rise above the negative feelings and to create ones of love and acceptance. Is that not what we want? Peace and harmony? I promise it will not happen if all we do is talk about how we can restrict the rights of our fellow human beings and treat them like they don’t exist. That is not to be human. To be human is to feel empathy. Which, I must say, Julius does not.

  132. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
    New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

  133. hey, she can think and believe whatever she wants. that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have to face the consequences of wearing her opinions for all to see like that, however.
    lots of christians do not believe that the bible is a condemnation of homosexuality. if she interprets the scriptures this way, then that is her right. but i am curious as to why she feels that EVERYONE, regardless of their faith or creed, has to live by HER rules…

  134. I won’t share the hate and discrimination being expressed here. Every view including for/against slavery is in the Bible We don’t allow slavery or stone children for disobedience so stop believing the literal translation of the parts of the Bible you want and decide to be a judge probably above your pay scale.
